Weapon Pack Bonus Revealed for Dark Souls II

By Marc Hollinshead, 2 years ago
Back in September, the special pre-order editions of soul-crushing dungeon crawler, Dark Souls II, were revealed. Have you decided to snap up one of these editions in time for its release yet? If so, then you're in for another treat.

NAMCO BANDAI has announced that if you're one of these people who want to get their hands on the game the second it's on shelves, you will be getting early access to some nifty weapons. The "Black Armour Weapons Pack" will be included as a voucher to redeem in both the Collector's Edition and Black Armour Edition of the game. This weapon pack will host a combination of swords, daggers, maces and shields to prepare you for the journey ahead. Whether these weapons will help you for long, though, is another story.

Black Flamestone Dagger and Black Flamestone Parma
A dagger and shield encrusted in Black Flamestone both found in the Gutter at Black Gulch. Even though they are heavier than a normal dagger and shield, the Flamestone crystal’s unique properties make the dagger extremely sharp and give the shield high resistance to damage.
Yellow Quartz Long Sword and Yellow Quartz Shield
A straight sword and small shield hardened with yellow quartz both uncovered at the bottom of the Iron Keep. Even though these items can break easily due to their high level of corrosion, they are exceptionally light and their power to inflict
Bound Hand Axe and Bound Wooden Shield
A brutal hand axe and shield found in the Undead Purgatory. Both items are wrapped in chains and thorns to cause additional bleeding on enemies. Both the axe and shield have diminished in overall slashing power but their ability to deliver pain has been deliberately increased.
Homunculus Mace and Homunculus Wooden Shield
A mace and shield with spherical protrusions found in Aldia’s Keep. Although heavier than normal maces and shields, the hard protrusions greatly increase the striking power of the mace as well as the shield’s defensive capabilities.
Transgressor’s Staff and Transgressor’s Leather Shield
A staff and leather shield entwined with an unknown and seemingly lackluster element; these items are found in the Dark Chasm of Old. They have become a catalyst for sorcery and hex and cause an effect known as Darkness.
It's only a month to go until we can get our hands on Dark Souls II. The game will be released on March 11th in North America and March 14th in Europe.

To summarize Marc in two words, it would be "Christian Gamer." You will usually find him getting stuck into story heavy action-adventure games, RPG's and the odd quirky title when he isn't raving about Dark Souls and Mass Effect. Outside the world of gaming, Marc attends and helps out in his church on a regular basis and has a not-so thrilling job in a supermarket.
